Forget Big Change! How to foster sustainable benefits – by projects

In today’s business context, the demand for major change seems to be never-ending. Organizations tend to trigger major change initiatives to tackle challenges like agility, digital transformation etc. These major change initiatives are meant to discontinuously change the identity of these organization, which  – more often than not – leads to a paralyzed state of organizations due to the level of complexity associated with these changes. Managers lose focus, employees lack orientation and motivation and the triggered initiatives cannot create momentum.

But there are other ways to implement “changes” in organizations. In our understanding, projects deliver change! So, instead of inflating major change initiatives by increasing the scope and complexity further, why not change the perspective? Focus on the individual projects and put them in a change context. Adapt and integrate values and methods from change management approaches into project management. Empower project organizations and create fast results… and by doing this, let your projects create sustainable business value for your organizations that make at least some of these major change initiatives obsolete.
